Tuesday marked one week of Nell's life in the outside world. We celebrated the occasion with cake.
Nell's accomplishments so far include:
~ Sneezing (usually in twos, occasionally in threes, almost never a single sneeze at a time) ~
~ Poking her fingers in her eyes with alarming precision ~
~ Crossing her eyes like a pro ~
~ Sticking her tongue out ~
~ Sucking her thumb (or her wrist or arm when she can't find her thumb) ~
~ Sleeping four to five hours at a time at night ~
~ Having her Dad wrapped around her little finger ~
~ Eliciting oohs and aahs from everyone who sees her ~
The first week in review
First day at home (less than one day old):
Two days old:
saying goodbye to Story and Mercy
Four days old:
meeting one of her grandmas
and a grandpa, too
chillin' with Dad
Five days old:
Grandma took a break from making us delicious meals to hold a sleepy Nell
listening to Dad play the piano
Six days old:
don't tell me this isn't a smile... I know infants supposedly don't smile this young, but I am convinced that our girl does!
One week old!
We love this baby girl!
